Questions & Answers

What is the square foot of a house that this generator can carry

Asked by: Jenny
The amount of power required for your personal application is not determined by the size of your home but by the power output requirements of your desired loads. To determine the ideal generator for your personal needs, we would recommend contacting a certified electrician in your local area. For help locating a certified party near you, contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Want for 27 ft camper. Already has liquid propane for small appliances, but need more for heat/AC

Just bought the camper to put on some property. Have no experience with generators. Want enough wattage, but not overkill power. Maybe enough to share if another camper comes to visit. Help! The sale ends today!
Asked by: andrea
Unfortunately, we are unfamiliar with the power output requirements of your desired loads. Moreover, we are unable to size a generator via online correspondence. To ensure you are able to acquire a generator that will meet your personal needs and local code requirements, we would recommend working with a certified electrician in your local area. For help locating a certified party near you, contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Which home generator 7, 12, or 16 should I purchase?

My house is 2800 sq ft with 2 floors, attic, and unfinished basement
Asked by: Brian
It depends on dow much wattage the generator has to supply to the house. Do you have electric heat or gas heat? Do you heat your water with gas or electric? Do you run a freezer? Do you get you water from a well with a water pump? How big the house is and how many floors is meaningless!

Customer Reviews

7,000-Watt Air Cooled Automatic Standby Generator with 50 Amp 8-Circuit Transfer Switch and Whips is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm very satisified with this generator. A worth while investment. I did the installation myself and am satisfied with the end result. Once wired and piped to the gas supply the generator started and ran as expected. I found the wiring compartment in the generaor to be a little small making it difficult to work in and it had only one knock out for electrical connections. I also found the transfer panel/switch had limited entry points for wiring with the panel installed between wall framing. Purchasing the generator has been the best insurance policy I bought in a long time as I have not lost my power since I installed it but, I do have the comfort of knowing I'll be prepared when I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the money Really like the product. Just be prepared for the cost associated with the installation! Really like the fact that we can be away from the house and never have to worry about losing power. Everything essential will continue to run without having to be there to start the generstor or keep it filled with gasoline

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product Overall owner with experience can install it. Automatic Operations work excellently. Quality good except they send me the wrong size hose and some screw holes were oversize or stripped. After they install the motor they need to reroute the wires i order to get to the oil drain or fill tubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very pleased to have purchased a standby generator. I was hesitant to buy a standby generator because of the cost, but I am so happy that I did! I have medicine that needs refrigeration. Our neighborhood has lost power 9 times during the past year, so this is exactly what we needed to do! When we had 2 tornados in a month's time about 3 years ago, the power was off for days. This is such a good investment and important to our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satisfied Easy to install, Do not like cover, Battery difficult to access. I like Generac, NOT THIS particular Model. Will definitely purchase different model next time.
